The Arduino compatible market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.35 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12.2% over the forecast period 2023 – 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It consists of both a physical programmable circuit board and a piece of software or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer. It can be used to develop interactive objects or environments that sense and control more of the physical world than typical personal computers. Some key uses of Arduino include prototyping and building IoT (Internet of Things) devices ranging from wearables and robots to smart home products. Its open-source nature allows developers to easily build upon the work of others and take inspiration from the large community of projects online.
The arduino compatible market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) across various industrial sectors. IoT-enabled devices such as sensors and actuators require microcontrollers for connectivity and control functions. The open-source and modular nature of Arduino makes it a suitable platform for prototyping and developing IoT devices in a cost-effective manner.
